Where to Watch the SAG Nominations Tomorrow Morning

The Screen Actors Guild Awards nominations will be announced Wednesday morning at 7:00 a.m. PT/10 a.m. ET.

The SAG nominations play a huge part in predicting Oscar nominees and winners. A nomination here shows huge support for a film and performance.

Most of the Academy is made up of actors who also are SAG-AFTRA members. A ensemble nomination shows broad appeal across a wide variety of tastes.

Actors like other actors. They want to award films with strong acting ensembles.

This year is incredibly difficult to predict. There is still no consensus in most of the categories.

The list of possible ensemble nominees are:

The Post
Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
The Shape of Water
Lady Bird
Get Out
I, Tonya
The Disaster Artist
Call Me By Your Name

You can watch the live nominations here on Wednesday morning.
